Ollie Mansfield

Oliver loves performing with the Hastings Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as sharing his passion for teaching the next generation of cellists at Junior Trinity and mentoring cello teachers on the Music Masters PGCEi course.

He studied with Alison Moncrieff-Kelly at the East Sussex Academy of Music who helped him gain a full scholarship to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with John Todd and Catherine Ardagh-Walter. Upon graduating with a BMus(Hons) degree Oliver was awarded with the Principal’s Prize. He then went onto study privately with renowned cellist Sue Lowe, who helped him gain an LTCL Recital Diploma with Distinction, become a Fellow of Trinity College London, as well as hugely influencing his overall pedagogic approach.

Oliver regularly organises events for cellists. He Co-Directed Go Cello! which was a national cello festival set in Greenwich, organised Cello Club events for the London Cello Society (Around the World, Cello Folk! and Cello Mad!) and directed the annual Cello Day at St. Dunstans’ College.

You can probably spot him enjoying a cup of coffee in one of the many fantastic coffee shops in Hastings and St. Leonard’s. Feel free to say hello!
